Roland: ‘I’m not satisfied’ with Target announcing $2B for Black-owned businesses

“I don’t want the crumbs, I want the whole entrée” – Roland Martin

On Wednesday, Target announced it will spend more than 2-billion-dollars with black-owned businesses by 2025.

Target is promising:

– Increase the number of products from Black-owned businesses to more than 500 across our stores and online.

– Spend more with Black-owned companies including marketing agencies, construction companies, facilities maintenance providers and others.

– Establish new resources, including Forward Founders, a program designed to engage with Black entrepreneurs early in their startup journey and help them grow and scale their businesses in mass retail. Forward Founders was built on the success of our Target Accelerators program and co-created with Black entrepreneurs from its advisory council.
